While going through my bookmarks and cleaning house I discovered that I had this particular site bookmarked and suddenly realized that this is an incredible resource for us to use when making maps and we need a height map. It even has Middle Earth. :D

Very nice, RPMiller. I've definitely bookmarked that link in my cartography folder. Thanks for the link.

Wild; it even has Wichita, KS! Some rep comin' at ya.

edit: By the way, it's worthwhile to follow the "How to create regions" link in the upper left. For your convenience, it leads here: http://www.rebel13.com/SimCity/howto.html

Great stuff ! Don't forget that you can save any of these as Height.bmp and then run up my free dragon flight app to see in 3D if you dont have a better height field viewer.
